Based in New York City, YAI has been providing services for people with developmental disabilities for more than 50 years. Expanding their reach to New Jersey, Rockland, Westchester, Long Island and even Puerto Rico through the YAI/NIPD Network, YAI delivers residential, day treatment, educational and clinical services to more than 1500 clients every year.
The multi-faceted nature of YAI’s programs allows interns to explore many areas of the non-profit business. Social work students can take advantage of the ability to shadow case managers and counselors, while recent graduates in business or communications can be placed full time in the Development or Professional Information departments. There are many opportunities to take your experience beyond the internship period and into a full career.
